Preheat oven to 350⁰ and grease and line two 9in round tins.

Mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and oil in a bowl.

Peel the apples, covering them in the mixture to keep their colour.

Mix the baking powder into the flour, then add to the ingredients in the bowl and mix well.

Pour mixture into the tins and bake for approximately 55 minutes.
